Copper Run supports two canadian-registered charities, The Farley Foundation, and the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WILDCRU) of the University Of Oxford.
In their own words:
THE FARLEY FOUNDATION
The Farley Foundation was established by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) in 2001 and assists people in financial need by subsidizing the cost of veterinary care for the pets that mean the world to them.
The Foundation subsidizes the cost of non-elective veterinary care for pets owned by:
- Seniors receiving the Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement GIS);
- Disabled individuals receiving the Ontario Disability Support Payment (ODSP) or the Canada Pension Plan – Disability (CPP Disability);
- Women at risk of abuse entering registered women’s shelters, and who are participating in the OVMA safepet Program;
- Individuals receiving financial assistance through Ontario Works; and
- Facilities catering to seniors who require special care, including supporting housing, retirement homes and long-term care facilities.

WILDCRU – OXFORD UNIVERSITY
The mission of the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (wildcru) is to achieve practical solutions to conservation problems through original scientific research. Our research is used worldwide to advise environmental policy-makers. The need for our efforts is greater than ever.
Part of the University of Oxford’s Department of Zoology, wildcru is a pioneering, inter-disciplinary research unit in a world-class academic centre. We underpin solutions to conservation problems through primary scientific research of the highest calibre. Our approach is empirical, interdisciplinary and collaborative, seeking to include all four elements of our “Conservation Quartet” research to understand and address the problem; education to explain it; community involvement to ensure participation and acceptance; and implementation of long-term solutions.
